Agnes' Group's story

Agnes' Group is formed by 7 farmers from Kimilili District.
The Group is being represented by the Group leader, Agnes, who appears in the picture. She is 49 years old and has 6 children. Agnes has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Agnes isn’t new to One Acre Fund: she joined the program in 2015, and has since noticed that her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.
This year, Agnes will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition, because now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel, and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Agnes' Group will purchase a total of 6 solar lights, and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.75 acres.

In this group: Agnes, Emily, Beatrice, Samwel, David, Joshua, Wycklife

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
